The 2015 U-Make it U-sail it Races The UMIYSI troika is ready to “Pump you up” about our May 30th race. We are making a major change in the race concept this year. We are going to a “one design” boat, The boat will be a catamaran that we will sell as a kit. It will include all the major materials: foam board, 2 x 4’s, a pre-made sail, a mast of the builder’s choice, and a rudder of Plexiglas and PVC pipe. The remaining materials are provided by the builder and include nuts, bolts, screws, duct tape (primary binding material), lines for halyards and back stays, and sealer and paint if desired. The boat can be made in about a day and half by 2 adults and a child or two or three of em if ya got em. The maximum weight it can carry is still to be finalized. It will be at least 200lbs.The 2016 event is scheduled for May 14th, 2016. for more information (click here)
